I am excited to announce that Margin Probe is available in Plano

I am excited to announce that Margin Probe is available in Plano. Margin Probe is a new device approved by the FDA in December 2012 to help find breast cancer cells at the edges or margin of the removed tissue. Any woman who has undergone breast conservation with a breast cancer diagnosis knows there is a possibility of not being able to remove the entire tumor at the first surgery. Microscopic tumor can be present at the margins, or edges, of the lumpectomy and only seen under the microscope a few days after surgery. This means she has to go back to surgery to have more tissue removed. Margin Probe has been shown to reduce the need for a second surgery by 50%.
